Two Special Squadders and one prospect took part in Uudenmaa court SRA qualifications competition.
The weather was great for the date ( October 25th) and the stages were mostly pretty nice to shoot, with only few complaints: the plates on the plate-rack on stage1 were very heavy and it was not easy to tell a hit from 300m and 150m metal targets (stage4 and 5).
First we had to wait pretty long for the stage officials to finish their pre-match, but after that, the timetable held and we could quickly move to next stage after the previous one was shot.
After last stage we had some car problems but managed to get to awards ceremony in time to collect the medals for 1st and 2nd in Open Division.
Special Squad took part in Pikijärventie 2015 which was an SRA competition with 7 stages. The stages were well built and adequately challenging without being too complicated or memory games. The theme was “Operation Overlord” (Allied code name for Battle of Normandy). Stage descriptions in Finnish, with pictures
Stage 1 was a “sniper stage” with targets from 200 to 500m and allowed to be shot with a larger caliber rifle including a proper scope. The used targets were Jasters, a type of electronically functioning (reset, set up/down) large metal sheets. The organizer provided a .308 AR with a Leica scope, free of charge. Only one of us was able to shoot all 6 of the targets (200, 300, 2×385 and 2x500m) with the help of his own and familiar AR-10..
Stage 2 had a tank prop and it was nice and fast shooting with some close-up papers and 6 Jasters in a little distance. Stage 3 was a pistol stage with some paper targets and four poppers that were required to be shot strong hand only. Stage 4 had a very slow sledge that was activated from front of the stage, by the sandbags.
Stage 5 was nice variation from most of the stages we have shot. It simulated being stuck in a tree with a parachute! On stage 6 there was a Sig made AR-15, provided by organizer and readily set up with four rounds in the mag. In start you had to rack, shoot two papers, make safe and leave the rifle, continuing with pistol. Stage 7 was sort of a run and gun with shotgun, requiring minimal 16 shots.
We had two team entries, one for open (avoin) and one for standard (vakio). In combined results the open team won and standard team came second. Individually we won the lady category, had second on standard division and third on open.

Special Squad attended an SRA competition (a Finnish discipline that is similar to IPSC 3gun, but with a little army reserve twist). Here’s some photos (videos will follow later).

SRA a Finnish discipline that is similar to IPSC but with a little army reserve twist. The scoring is calculated as “combined” for Open and Standard division but both divisions are awarded separately.
